The Curse of the Broken Database
Another Monday morning, and another crash of the AWS database that drives our web site story content (and news). This makes the 3rd time this has happened since moving the web site to AWS. We are continuing to work on a solution. Hopefully, it won't be to move to yet another service provider. We'll see. Thanks to our intrepid readers who brought the problem to our attention.
Well that sucked...
Sometime early this morning, 10/9/2013, the cloud service we run the Big Head Press web site and email service on went down unexpectedly. We have not been told what caused the outage yet. The web site is functioning again, serving today's Quantum Vibe update. Though email is not functional at at this time, we hope it will be back soon. Look for us on facebook for further updates or to send us a message.
Update: All systems seem to be working again. Email is getting caught up now. We thank everyone for their patience this morning and will keep looking for ways to make the site less vulnerable to single points of failure problems.
The Transcript For This Page
Stone is in Nicole's hotel room, seated on the bed as she brings up Nicole's search history on the room Screen. The history shows a short list, which includes the names Claud Southend, The Lucky Duck Club, the Bully Goat Tavern, and Rando Greene.
Stone is in the Lucky Duck Club, talking to a bartender. She is showing an image of Nicole, but the bartender doesn't seem to recognize her.
Stone is in the Bully Goat Tavern. It's less crowded now, but there are still some patrons in the background. She's talking with the bartender, who does recognize Nicole's image.
One of the patrons, a rough-looking male, has walked up to Stone, shouting something while he angrily shoves her. Some of the other patrons look on with anticipation.
Stone effortlessly lifts the ruffian by his groin. His face reveals his agony. The other patrons are saucer-eyed.
Stone casually tosses the ruffian over her shoulder. The other patrons shy away.
In the Offworld Lounge, Stone scans the table where Nicole and Rando had been sitting with her visor.
As Stone walks down the street, she holds a palm alongside her face, indicating she is making a tel call.
Stone: So far I have two subjects, a journo and a publicist. I suspect our guy is the latter, but I'll be looking into both of them.
